Now Accepting Spring 2012 Undergraduate Research Scholars Program 

The Office of Student Scholarship, Creative Activities, and Research 
(OSCAR) is now accepting applications for the spring 2012 Undergraduate 
Research Scholars Program (URSP), formerly known as the Undergraduate 
Apprenticeship Program.  The URSP provides the opportunity for 
undergraduate students and their faculty mentors to engage in original 
research or creative projects with one another.  Accepted students are 
given a stipend that enables them to undertake twelve hours of 
research-related activities each week during the semester, in addition 
to receiving travel priority for applications submitted to the 
Undergraduate Student Travel Fund.  A fund of $500 will also be 
available to mentors to support the student's research project.

Students and their mentors are each required to submit an application to 
the program, which can be found below.  All application materials must 
be received by Wednesday, November 30, to be considered for the Spring 
2012 URSP.
